    Looks like Pelosi, Reid and the rest, were able to buy the rest of the crooks and sway them into voting yes. If you think your energy bills are high now...just wait. I hope all the higher taxes will be worth the .2% decrease in temps by 2100. The entire bill is nothing more than another power grab by the politicians. They are not looking out for the environment, they are only increasing their power and lining pockets with money. The corporations affected by this will only pass their extra cost's from this bill on the the consumer.

    This is a sad day for America.

    It'll never get through the Senate. But when 44 Dems vote against something in the House, it's defeated IF the Repugs stand firm. NINE of them voted FOR this stupid, dangerous shit. And what was the vote tally? 219-212. Disgusting.

    2010, there's gonna be a reckoning... At the voting booths.

    Power and greed. Remember every time you pay youre heating bill this winter and make them pay in November and every November until they are gone,fired ,dismissed. This is still the peoples house. When the senate rejects this bill do not forget the congressmen and women who voted yes. Bring them to account. Send them back to the real world.

    I knew it would pass.

    Just like the stimulous, they didn't read it, don't understand it, don't need it, and it will hurt the little guy.

    This is teh worst gov ever, it makes chimpola seem like the good old days.

    If this goes all the way through then ..............

    The way I see this crime is,............ it's just another nail in Obama's reelection coffin. And it will help fuel kicking the others out as well.

    The more he screws us, the less chance he (& his cronies) has of reelection. In the mean time, myself and my family will take steps to offset this new added cost.
